1 min agoHere’s how Thanksgiving hosts can be careful with guests traveling from around the US as Covid-19 cases riseAmericans are traveling for Thanksgiving across the country as United States sees Covid-19 cases rising in more than half the states. Two-in-three people say they will celebrate with friends or family outside their immediate households, and about half of those say their gatherings may include unvaccinated people, according to an Axios/Ipsos poll.

So how can hosts be careful with guests traveling from around the country and gathering at the table?

“Have the conversation, ask the question. Don’t do it in a confrontational or hostile way, but simply inquire,” says Dr. David Kimberlin of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. “If they’re not vaccinated, perhaps use that for an opportunity to say, ‘look, I love you … I really would appreciate it if you got vaccinated. It’s something I want for you just as it’s something I want for my own family as well.'”

In most situations, it’s OK to come together for the holiday in a careful manner, he adds. “It’s been a long time. And we need to celebrate and be thankful for where we are with the pandemic.”

Here’s what Kimberlin recommends:

If all household members and guests are vaccinated and your locality does not have high transmission rate, “you can gather inside without masks and be very confident that everyone will be safe,” he said.
However, if you’re in a high-transmission area and members of your household are not vaccinated, it’s a risky situation.
“In that kind of a scenario, you may want — out of an abundance of caution — to have people be tested before they come into the house. And make sure that, in fact, they are negative using the rapid tests that are pretty widely available.”45 min agoColorado officials urge travelers to be careful in mountain snowAn airport in Colorado is reporting a delay on arrivals because of a low cloud ceiling as millions of people are expected to fly for the Thanksgiving holiday, the FAA said.
